The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New mod_ssl packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, and
-current to fix a security issue. The packages were upgraded to
mod_ssl-2.8.18-1.3.31 fixing a buffer overflow that may allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via a client certificate with a
long subject DN, if mod_ssl is configured to trust the issuing CA.
Websites running mod_ssl should upgrade to the new set of apache and
mod_ssl packages. There are new PHP packages as well to fix a
Slackware-specific local denial-of-service issue (an additional
Slackware advisory SSA:2004-154-02 has been issued for PHP).

Update the affected apache, mod_ssl and / or php packages.
